Jeremiah 32:14'Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, "Take these deeds, this sealed deed of purchase and this open deed, and put them in an earthenware jar, that they may last a long time."


The above scripture kind of simply blew my mind! Amazing! Sometimes God speaks some words of ‘gold’ while you are actually going through some crazy situations, doesn’t He?  The word  came to Jeremiah from the LORD in the tenth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, which was the eighteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar, at a time when the army of the king of Babylon was besieging Jerusalem, and Jeremiah the prophet was shut up in the court of the guard, which was in the house of the king of Judah.  Boy! There was chaos in the city with army moving around maliciously but God brought delicious news to Jeremiah and said,” your uncle will be meeting you and you buy my field, please, that is at Anathoth, which is in the land of Benjamin; for you have the right of possession and the redemption is yours; buy it for yourself.' Then I knew that this was the word of the LORD.  Wow! Those were specific instructions! God does no hogwash talk!


On one side God told that the city will be captured by the enemies and burnt down but on the other hand He told His prophet Jeremiah that He should buy property and keep the sealed deed copy in an earthenware jar, so that it would be safe for a long time.  How can an earthenware jar be safe in the midst of war and fire??? Will it not break? What does God want to tell us through this?  When it is in the custody of God, the jar can be brittle and fragile; yet, God can preserve it! God through this, told the people to trust Him.  Jeremiah believed and said: “Ah Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You.” (Jeremiah 32:17)  Hey friend, bank lockers can fail  but not the EARTHERN JAR designed by God, are you listening?  Trust Him!


While I was working for a multinational bank as an executive secretary, I got saved through the miraculous healing that I received from God, during the complicated second pregnancy and the miraculous birth of my son Joshua.  After I served for few years and did part-time ministry in the bank, I resigned to join full time ministry in His Vineyard.  Just before resigning, I closed all my money-back policies and other long term insurance policies as well( I don’t advise you to do so), since now my trust was in Him only.  Without a SURE income, life might look like fragile MUD POT but hang on……………you are in the Hands of the Potter!
